The Supreme Court The United States Supreme Court is the final appellate court, the Supreme Court makes the decisions of legal issues from federal statutes. The ultimate authority and influence, the Supreme Court poses this for the legal, political and social issues for America. The United States Supreme consists of nine justices, with a chief justice. The chief justice is appointed by the United States President. The Supreme Court only approves a small amount request for certiorari. Other appellate courts go through all cases. Four to nine justices have to agree on a case in The Supreme Court to be granted. The Supreme Court is flooded with cases each year, anywhere from two thousand to five thousand, in hope that they will be chosen to be tried before the Supreme Court. Hundreds of cases that have had federal law issues in it go wrong, to go the Supreme Court for a second chance. These are real people who have appealed the decision of a lower court.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
